The causes of schizophrenia are many, including extreme stress, chemical imbalance, reaction to drugs, genetic predisposition, isolation, low self-esteem, and even a damaged or weakened aura (a supposed emanation surrounding the body of a living creature viewed by mystics, spiritualists, and some practitioners of complementary medicine as the essence of the individual and allegedly discernible by people with special sensibilities). My personal onset of schizophrenia and depression at age forty-two was caused, I believe, by a combination of the above. Through the caring help of family, friends, medical doctors, healers, and my own insights and intuitions, I was able to become completely free of the symptoms of schizophrenia and all antipsychotic and antidepressant medications used to treat the illness. Most influential and important to my healing and recovery, however, was the utilization of both borrowed and original strategies that keep me healthy to this day. The sharing of these strategies, which include identifying one’s gifts; relying on family members, friends, and caregivers; improving one’s self-esteem; identifying one’s authentic self; connecting with healers; being in gratitude; setting goals; and using positive affirmations for the purpose of recovering and maintaining positive mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health is the reason why I have written this book.

Here, leading neuroscientist Nancy Andreasen offers a state-of-the-art look at what we know about the human brain and the human genome--and shows how these two vast branches of knowledge are coming together in a boldly ambitious effort to conquer mental illness. Andreasen gives us an engaging and readable description of how it all works---from billions of neurons, to the tiny thalamus, to the moral monitor in our prefrontal cortex. She shows the progress made in mapping the human genome, whose 30,000 to 40,000 genes are almost all active in the brain. We read gripping stories of the people who develop mental illness, the friends and relatives who share their suffering, the physicians who treat them, and the scientists who study them so that better treatments can be found. Four major disorders are covered--schizophrenia, manic depression, anxiety disorders, and dementia--revealing what causes them and how they affect the mind and brain. Finally, the book shows how the powerful tools of genetics and neuroscience will be combined during the next decades to build healthier brains and minds. By revealing how combining genome mapping with brain mapping can unlock the mysteries of mental illness, Andreasen offers a remarkably fresh perspective on these devastating diseases.

Deleuze Beyond Badiou

First published in 1997, Alain Badiou’s Deleuze: The Clamor of Being cast the thinker as a secret philosopher of the One, compromising Deleuze’s standing among political philosophers concerned with the practical and historical aspects of existence. Clayton Crockett rehabilitates Deleuze’s position within contemporary, cutting-edge political and philosophical thought, advancing an original reading of the thinker’s major works and a constructive conception of his philosophical ontology. Through close readings of Deleuze’s Difference and Repetition, Capitalism and Schizophrenia (with Felix Guattari), and Cinema 2, Crockett argues Deleuze is anything but the austere, quietistic, and aristocratic intellectual Badiou portrays. Instead, Crockett underscores Deleuze’s radical aesthetics and innovative scientific, political, and mathematical forms of thought. Challenging predominant orthodoxy, he also refutes the notion that Deleuze retreated from politics toward the end of his life, grounding his argument in the revolutionary political concept of the time-image developed in Cinema 2. Using Badiou’s critique as a foil, Crockett maintains the profound continuity of Deleuze’s work and builds a general interpretation of his more obscure formulations. His study also offers original readings of Badiou’s central philosophical texts, Theory of the Subject, Being and Event, and Logics of Worlds, and uses the devastating earthquake in Haiti as a test case for applying Deleuze’s thought.
